Wow! According to this article, Mao's going to have her own brand of clothing, called MaoMao! flower
http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/news/p-sp-tp0-20101230-719182.html

It's being developed by this kimono company in Kyoto, and there will be an announcement next May. At first, it will start with yukata (light kimono for the summer), and then there will be kimono to be worn at graduation ceremonies, hakama, etc. These will be sold at department stores and clothing stores around the nation.

Mao's going to participate in the Coming of Age ceremony this January, and apparently the kimono (it has long sleeves so it's called furisode), has fabric and a design that she picked herself! Very Happy Later on, they plan to sell MaoMao brand warm-up clothing, sporting goods, casual wear and stationary stuff based on her advice and designs based on her image.

Sounds like a lot of fun! cheers

Can't wait to see Mao all dressed up in kimono!! Love Hearts

Surely that can be the basis for a Taka-Mao moment too. Who, me?

Shocked

Is this the start of a golden enterprise for Mao? Razz

This makes me want to anticipate what kind of kimono Mao will be wearing. And what would be the design of these MaoMao merchandises. Why am I not in Japan?

Mao's own brand of clothing? I'm so excited. Happy dance

Hmm.. I wonder if Mao will be wearing her own brand of skating dress in the future? It will be so cool. Hopefully, she can find a different designer Smile

Ok, now that I've started, I just can't stop! Sweatdrop Too sweet!

Here's what I'm imagining for the day of the seijinshiki (Coming of Age ceremony).

They are having festivities for the Coming of Age day ceremony at Chuukyou University, so after attending the ceremony, Mao decides to stop by the ice rink since she knows Taka-chan and the Satos will be there.

She is wearing a lovely pink kimono and has her hair up in a bun (much like she wears it for competitions), secured with a pretty pink ornament.

When she enters the rink, Taka-chan is on the ice, while Nobuo-sensei, Kumiko-sensei, and Taka-chan's father, Tsuguhiko, are standing by the boards and watching.

Mao shuffles toward them—she’s not used to walking in geta [slippers]—and says shyly, "Hello..?", and they all turn to look at her.

"Mao-chan, you came!" Kumiko-sensei exclaims, her face full of delight. "Oh, you look SO pretty! Just like a doll! A princess doll!" She examines Mao's kimono while Mao beams.

“I picked the fabric and the design myself!”

With his gentle smile, Nobuo-sensei looks like a proud papa, and he says nostalgically, "This reminds me of when Yuka was young..."

Meanwhile, Taka-chan has stopped by the boards to see what all the fuss is about, and he just stands there staring at Mao, completely dumbfounded.

"Nobuo-sensei, let's take a picture together!" Mao says. She hands a camera to Taka's father, and while they're posing, Kumiko-sensei looks over and sees Taka-chan's dumbstruck expression.

She smiles to herself. Then, with a knowing glint in her eye, she says to him, "Takahiko-kun, doesn't Mao-chan look so pretty?"

“Huh?” Taka-chan snaps out of his reverie. “What? Oh, umm, yeah.” His face turns bright red.

Kumiko-sensei laughs. Then she turns around and says, “Mao-chan, why don’t you take a picture with Takahiko?”

“Ah, ok!” Mao goes up to the boards, next to where Taka-chan is standing.

“Why are you looking at me like that?” she asks, seeing the funny expression on Taka-chan’s face. He still can’t stop staring. “Do I look that funny?”

“No, no, I- “ he stammers, his voice strangely strained. “Uh, you look, uh, very nice, Mao.”
“Really?”
“Yeah, you look…very pretty.” He manages an embarrassed smile, and Mao’s entire face lights up as she smiles back at him.

As Nobuo-sensei takes pictures, Kumiko-sensei leans over to Taka-chan’s father and whispers, “Mao-chan will make a beautiful bride, don’t you think?”

Tsuguhiko-san suddenly turns pale. “Well, uhh, ehh…”

Kumiko-sensei just laughs and smiles. “They grow up so fast, don’t they?


THE END

Many Hearts Hell, no!

Hehehe!!! You don't have to stop Batsuchan! This is turning out to be a good drama indeed! Hell, no!

I'm happy for Mao! I wish they have international shipping as well! Otherwise I'll get my friend in Japan to buy me some before she comes back- so hopefully they launch everything soon!

Great news!! flower

But honestly, I think I am more excited for Mao about her 'coming-of-age' ceremony rather than her new endeavor in the non-skating world. Too sweet!

I am soooooo looking forward to Mao's 'coming-of-age' ceremony. I've been yearning to see Mao dressed in kimono again:

Like a Star @ heaven http://ameblo.jp/atelier-raisin/image-10683364017-10813769703.html

Like a Star @ heaven http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/twinstarstheory/22270321.html

Like a Star @ heaven http://www.kyo-roman.com/events/661





Though, will Mao be wearing a 'hakama' or 'kimono'? Whirly

Pink always look very flattering on Mao. But am hoping for a different colour scheme that will compliment her mature personality. Perhaps a subtler but elegant piece with a cool undertone? flower

She'll be wearing a furisode. See here for an explanation:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furisode

After the 2006 NHK Trophy, Mao wore a red furisode.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZ75od7wg4A&feature=related
She says that it's the 3rd time she's wearing a furisode--the other two times were for the Shichigosan ceremony ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shichigosan ), and for the 2005 GPF.

(She and Daisuke look soo young! WOW! )

I agree with you snowdrops24; pink suits Mao very well, and it's one of her favorite colors, but it might be nice to see her in a different color.

Mao likes to wear red in competition, but I'm not sure I like this red kimono as much as the pink ones. I'm kind of thinking that a pale lemony yellow might be nice! Love Hearts Oooh, this is exciting!

Very funny, because when I clicked on the link and read the Wiki article, this part caught my eye:

Quote :
By wearing a furisode, a young woman signifies that she is both single and a legal adult, and thus available for marriage.

See what you're doing Batsuchan? Just guess what I am thinking! Who, me? ROTFLMAO

BTW, is the person with Mao her sister Mai? I'm sure it's her but she looks different here. Well, anyway, I just want to say that somehow I love her traditional dress better!

Yep, that's Mai! flower It's from 2008, so I guess she looks a bit different now. I think she's wearing a hakama... Question

Can't wait to see those cloths Wub

First time I read the title of thread I thought that maybe this brand of clothing will be based on dresses from Mao's programs. That would be interesting Very Happy Can you imagine that you can buy clothes similar to her dresses from "por una cabeza", chopin or even "bells of moscow" (without a frill on the top and gloves it could be a nice tunic) ROTFLMAO

Cool news!

Mao is not known to be the most fashionable person (didn't she once say herself that she wished she had better fashion taste or something like that?), but it doesn't matter. She is Mao, and she is very much adored! Her name on something will sell great, I'm sure.

I saw a pic of Mao in a short pink kimono once. It was so cute, and looked great on her! I wish I could find that damn pic....

Oh, what is a coming of age ceremony Question

For the links. YouTube scares me a bit! I'm glad I do not have to do a Mao search on YouTube. Though this season hasn't been too bad.
